Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) aims to help promote mental and emotional healing by encouraging people in treatment to be compassionate toward themselves and other people. Compassion, both toward the self and toward others, is an emotional response believed by many to be an essential aspect of well-being. Its development may often have the benefit of improved mental and emotional health.

Trained mental health professionals may offer CFT in their practice to help and support individuals in treatment who wish to explore ways to relate to themselves and others with greater compassion.

CFT can be helpful to people who find it challenging to understand, feel, or express compassion. Therapy can be a safe place in which to discover any reasons behind this difficulty and explore methods of positive change. This type of therapy can also be effective at helping people manage distressing thoughts, behaviours, and feelings of any kind but may be particularly helpful when dealing with feelings associated with self-attack.

Other concerns treated with CFT include:

  • Anxiety
  • Shame
  • Self-criticism
  • Depression
  • Disordered eating
  • Anger
  • Self-injury
  • Psychosis

CFT can be helpful to people who find it challenging to understand, feel, or express compassion. Therapy can be a safe place in which to discover any reasons behind this difficulty and explore methods of positive change.


You have a treasure within you that is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.
